ECTRIMS will host MSMilan Patient Community Day on Saturday 14 October 2023, 15:00–17:00 CEST, at the Allianz MiCo Milano Convention Centre in Milan, Italy, and online. This day presents a unique opportunity for individuals living with MS and related neurological conditions including NeuroMyelitis Optica Spectrum Disorder (NMOSD) and MOG Antibody Associated Disorder (MOGAD) to:
- learn about the latest advancements affecting their ongoing care & treatment options
- ask & receive answers from top neurological experts about the latest research affecting their condition.
This is an onsite and online event with free registration. The event will be held in English, with live translation offered in Italian, German, French, Spanish and Portuguese.
With over 2.8 million individuals around the world impacted by MS today, ECTRIMS wants to make sure it can share the latest research unveiled at our meetings with those most affected by it. We hope this event empowers those living with this and other related conditions to be better informed about decision making affecting their treatment and care options.

Get Involved with #ECTRIMS4Me
In addition to presentations from experts, MSMilan Patient Community Day will be highly interactive. As part of our new #ECTRIMS4me campaign designed to give people living with MS a greater voice, participants are invited to submit questions, which will be answered by MS experts during the event.
“The contribution of participants and their family members is fundamental to this important event,” adds Mara Rocca, Associate Professor of Neurology at Vita-Salute University and Head of the Neuroimaging of CNS White Matter Unit at the San Raffaele Hospital, Milan, Italy, who is co-moderating the event with Prof. Tintorè. “We invite them to actively participate and make the most of this special opportunity to learn from a diverse range of MS experts.”
